We headed to Manchester on Saturday and it really was everything it's cracked up to be. Under Nick's guiding hand we headed straight for the Northern Quarter, a mix of imposing old warehouse buildings, cool little bars and cafes and amazing value vintage shops.
Note the above vintage Aran cardigan, I picked up this beauty for £30, a bargain I thought!
We spent the day tucking into mulled wine and popping into lovely little bars as well as ambling round the Christmas markets. The Northern Quarter was just the sort of place I can imagine selling my chairs, I think Hickey and Dobson would fit in very well up there and I went to bed dreaming about the day I can afford to open my own shop!
PS: Sheffield wasn't half bad either, the botanical gardens were beautiful and it had some really pretty little shopping streets, it's just that it was tipping down with rain and therefore not at it's most photogenic!
